This new work by Jos Smolders is part of his "beeld-kleur" (image-color) series, specifically aimed at "pictorial music" or repesentative music, as opposed to his usually non-figurative compositions. Hemel is dutch for "sky" but also for "heaven." Says Jos: "I sometimes think of Kevin's music as heavenly. Also, his earlier radio stuff reminded me of the aether, up up up in the sky..."

Subject: Homage to K.M. Krebs/833-45
âHemelâ ( âskyâ or âheavenâ in Dutch) is part of a recent trilogy of No Type releases. Consisting of a single sixteen-minute track, âHemelâ pays homage to composer K. M. Krebs who releases electronic music under his own name and, also, as 833-45.

K. M. Krebs has a forte for creating electronic music using several mediums from field recordings to captured radio signals to purely computer/software generated sounds, and he also has a special gift for juxtaposing opposites in his music - concrete vs. abstract, material vs. spiritual, organic vs. synthesized etc. With âHemelâ, Jos Smolders puts forth a potent composition that both encapsulates and reflects the methods, sounds, and abilities of K. M. Krebs. âHemelâ is a well thought out and meticulously sequenced collage of sounds made up of, among other things, terse startling bursts of noise, brief interludes of near silence, slightly discordant strummed guitar, melancholy chords, high frequency hiss, rhythms made from the sizzle of static, found sounds, abstract percussion, metallic noises, and distant radio voices. -LAJ-
